Wayward Sons announce new album

Following the critically acclaimed release of 2017 debut album Ghosts Of Yet To Come, Wayward Sons return with a new album, The Truth Ain’t What It Used To Be, on the 11th October 2019 on Frontiers Music Srl.

The new album could be called a concept record, as there is a narrative thread that connects the twelve tracks, but singer/guitarist and songwriter Toby Jepson, prefers to call it a ‘protest’ record and describes the new materials as ‘political’ but not of the sort that seeks to hammer the message home, more of a reflection of his take on where the world and we are.

Jepson admires and draws influence from storytellers like Elvis Costello, David Bowie and Queen – artists who could pass on their message through their storytelling craft. A short film will run alongside the album, with four video tracks standing alone and also being able to run together as a whole. The film traces the narrative of the album. The first video will be for the track Joke’s On You and can be viewed here:

Wayward Sons is a UK guitar act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums).

They are a stunning live act. Their debut album saw them supporting the likes of Inglorious, UFO and Steel Panther as well as a host of festival appearances.
